of president obama tenure, gdp growth has been 1.5%. historically, for the last seven years, it has been 3.7%. we have had less than half the historical average pared by contrast, in 1984, gdp growth was 7.2% print what does that mean when the economy is growing, when small businesses are prospering? they are creating new jobs and people are able to find work. it creates opportunity for everyone. what we have unfortunately is small business after small business facing crushing uncertainty. the single biggest question you hear from business leaders is they don't know between obamacare and dodd-frank and the offshore drilling moratorium in texas. but entrepreneurs expressed to me is the sense of great uncertainty. what will the federal regulators do? and the president keep promising to raise everyone's taxes, which is causing small businesses to keep capital on the sidelines and not deploy it because they have so much uncertainty. >> i am not certain that the president is going to raise their once taxes. but you know what the growth rate was -- do a deal with the gdp growth rate was at the e
. this claim by the republicans, i give it to pinocchios. obama will claim that are ryan's plan for medicare will for seniors to pay $6,400 more a year to make up for cuts in the program. this is an old democratic attack that has been around for a while. the problem is it is based on an earlier version of ryan's plan. that is another thing i have given two pinocchios. people should always be aware of dire predictions far off in the future. the $6,400 figure refers to an analysis of cbo estimates of a different, less generous ryan plan that goes to the year 2022. they make no estimates of the new version, except to say that beneficiaries might face higher costs. the plan was changed in other ways too. it changed the option of traditional medicare. it also decided to set the feature growth rate for medicare to the same matter accused by obama in his budget so there would not be a difference there. a study published recently by a journal of the american medical association suggests the average cost to additional medicare would be on the $800 more a year in the ryan plan if it had been in place
afford four more years of barack obama. we are not going to have four more years of barack obama. >> wednesday, president obama and mitt romney have their first presidential debate. joins the stand for the debate and post-debate coverage. join us live. >> now a debate from the 2000 presidential campaign. vice president al gore was nominated by the democrats and texas gov. george w. bush was the republican choice that your. their first three meetings that -- their thirst -- their first of three meetings that year was held in boston. this is an hour and 45 minutes. >> good evening from the clark athletic center at the university of massachusetts in boston. i'm jim lehrer of the newshour on pbs, and i welcome you to the first of three 90-minute debates between the democratic candidate for president, vice president al gore and the republican candidate, governor george w. bush of texas. the debates are sponsored by the commission on presidential debates and they will be conducted within formats and rules agreed to between the commission and the two campaigns. we'll have the candidates
.s. recognition of statehood. that is something obama has not received enough credit for. within a year, we have both a jewish congresspersons, one republican and one democrat saying opposite things. your party would do better in the white house for israel. >> i certainly believe so. it is a very critical period. small things can mean an awful lot when the president has not been to israel, snubs the prime minister, has made outrageous claims. these have consequences. i think some of the arab states right now -- these are big blunders. >> you mean the book, thldest of the arab states? >> that daylight between israel and the united states. this is an administration of a great deal of rhetoric. let's look to the actions. >> that is an interesting point, congressman. there are people that say, it doesn't matter if there are nice photo ops. but does it matter what president obama is eating in jerusalem? >> it does matter. >> would you measure military support with the diplomatic aid? he may not love is real. >> i am not asking obama if he loves it, if he believes it is in the best interests of the un
politifact looked at earlier this years -- something nancy pelosi put out -- that obama had increased the that the lease of any president and last six or seven presidents. it was all over facebook and exploded among democrats. i ended up giving that four pinocchio's and that became a viral thing from the other side. also looked at graphic elements that either campaign has put on there website. assertions of fact there that were wanting in both cases -- >> we try to do a lot of those things on facebook because the same way that chain e-mail's became a medium for transmittal of false information, the facebook posts that we called jpeg propaganda, especially during the occupy movement, became a way to spread propaganda. much of it inaccurate. it is tough. what we have to go through every day, this gets to the challenge -- any given day, there are probably 50 or 60 or 100 things we could check. we have for fact checkers. we have to be selective and lately, we focused almost entirely on the presidential campaign messages. but there are interesting senate races we have been unable to fact c
. by the time the reigns got turned back tobarack obama and me, they had double the national deat in eight years. the fourth, fifth, or six days we were in office, we were sitting in the oval office at sunset, and we were informed, mr. president, looking at this year's budget you are going to have a trillion dollars deficit. he said, "i haven't done anything yet." [laughter] he said, no, mr. president, the budget they passed in october of last year guarantees that no matter what you do, you will have a trillion dollar deficit this year in the budget. ladies and gentlemen, these guys talk about the national debt. what date did generated the slowest growth in private-sector jobs since world war ii. it gave us this great recession. what they have not told us is that they have been unwilling to do anything about it. here's the deal, folks. we laid out a $4 trillion debt reduction plan over the next 10 years. we have already passed $1 trillion of it. ladies and gentlemen, these guys vote against everything. no, no, no. i really mean it. not only do they say they don't like our plan, so you say, what'
years ago, were pulling the wool over the eyes of voters even back then. at least with obama, as of we have heard, he is somewhat more circumspect when speaking in person about his new ones and some of the things you hear coming out of his ads. in one case, he corrected or contradicted his own advertising. to make my predictions, i sort of threw darts at the claims they make in their stump speeches, romney and obama. we recently did takeouts on the standard speeches that they give. one from each side. i predicted it is quite likely that we will hear mitt romney say that gasoline prices have doubled under obama, which is an example of one of those things that is, yes, literally true if you look at where gasoline prices were when he took office. they have plummeted due to the world wide near-depression we suffered, but the fact is that they have never quite gotten as high under obama as they work for several weeks in the summer of 2008 under bush. i think we will also hear president obama say that we have created half a million manufacturing jobs. he will drop his voice and say, in the l
roiling for over two years. the presidential race. for a while, is deemed competitive. president obama seems to have pulled ahead by about five points in the latest polls. some of that has helped to change the trajectory of the race. earlier this month, governor tommy thompson, republican, seem to have the momentum. at this point, his democratic rival tammy baldwin seems to be within the margin of error or a little ahead. >> why is that? >> my best guess is that the baldwin surge corresponds with president obama getting some distance from governor romney. in august, it seemed competitive, and still is. governor thompson was perceived as the best nominee. he had a competitive primary. paul ryan was nominated for the vp. it seems like suddenly wisconsin was back in the republican column. >> is tonight their first and only debate? >> i do not know that off the top of my head but it is going to be an interesting evening because governor thompson is a statewide branch. he is known as tommy. he is going to be seeking to label all and as a liberal. she is too liberal for nancy pelosi. she is
